Police Make Arrest for Powell Street Murder

The Dothan Police  Department  has arrested Joseph Hall (34) of Dothan, for the murder of Andrew Jones that occurred in January of 2019. Police investigators have been working this murder tirelessly since January of last year.   Mr. Hall has been  in the investigator’s sights since the murder but they have not been able to crack the case.  Through the course of the investigation,  a big break occurred and allowed the pieces needed to get the arrest warrant and charge Mr. Hall.  Because of his past and information received, The Dothan Police were assisted by The US Marshals with searching two houses in the 800 blk of Linden.

Early this morning, the Dothan Special Response Team (SRT) and the US Marshals simultaneously hit two separate houses on Linden Street. Dothan SRT used multiple flash-bang grenades to clear the residence. Once inside the residence, multiple fire arms were recovered and several different types of narcotics. Crack-cocaine, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy pills. The US Marshals hit the other residence where Joseph Hall was asleep on the bed but was awoke by the US Marshals and taken into custody without incident.

There will be more charges that follow.

Mr. Hall is being held on no bond.

All persons are innocent until proven guilty  in a court of law
